We obtained this free stay courtesy of IHG and decided to check out this brand. It is about 10 minutes walk from New Street station and even less to the popular Broad Street area for bars and nightlife.
What sells this hotel is the nearly all-round city views from the top floor bar and restaurant. Unfortunately, this is a very popular venue which appeals to non-staying visitors. It was jam-packed during our Saturday night stay so we didn't get to look around properly.
The hotel reception is at ground level but curiously listed as floor seven. There are two floors for Hotel Indigo, the two directly below the bar, which are floors 23 and 24. These are accessed by two lifts but can only hold eight people each which caused queues for the bar. Fortunately, there was a member of staff who gave preference to those staying at the hotel.
Our room was on floor 24 and was very colourful and comfortable. Being an Executive room it had a mini-fridge, robes, large shower and even speakers from the television in the shower room. The window was floor to ceiling, so there was a terrific view of the area.
This hotel probably appeals to younger people who would like to party upstairs.
